Transcriptions is a Text Editor optimized for fast transcription of audio- or video material. Mac OS X 10.5 or later.

Transcriptions - audio- and video transcription software for MAC

Free Audio- and Video-Transcription software for Mac OS X 10.5

This free software-program can be used for transcription of Audio- and Videomaterial with a Apple Computer (MAC OS X10.5+). This program works with a Rich-Text-Editor and a Media-Player, including more and extended control functions such as variable playback speed, length of the rewind interval and more. All functions can be operated with shortcuts. Also very convenient is to work with the USB-footswitch for playing and stopping file. The program can play all data-formats supported by the Quick-Time-Player.

As in f4audio (for PC) you can set time-markers. Time-markers are an important aid, allowing you to quickly find the original source. Time-markers are inserted by using "Control + t" or automatically. If you click on a time-marker in your text, the audio data will be played at that particular point. You can set the time-marker manual or automatic.

You also are able to set up text elements to be inserted automatically for example the word „Interviewer". Simply insert "@" + "your chosen letter" and hit space.


We also recommend downloading the free plugins Perian and Flip4Mac . Through them you can also play many special formats as FLV, DivX, H.264, MPEG1 & MPEG2 Video, Windows Media Audio v1 & v2, MPEG Layer II, WMA and many more.
